Timothy travels to the rural areas of Mozambique, a country ravaged by civil wars for many years, to provide people in remote villages with access to clean drinking water. This is critical for disease prevention and decreasing infant mortality. Timothy is unable to speak Portuguese, which is widely spoken in Mozambique. He uses Google Translate to communicate with the communities he works with. By copying emails and text messages sent to him by project managers into Google Translate he is able to read and respond to his colleagues to get the work done.
